Smash Cars - PC Buyer Beware

Buyer Beware. There is no x-box controller support on this game whatsoever for the PC. No publisher name posted on Steam. Website, takes you to a Facebook page, and if you make a post there asking why no x-box support or try to warn other buyers - they delete your posts. Hope this helps before you part with your cash.

It may not matter to any purchase decision, but the developer website is listed on the Steam store page. Here's the site http://www.creatstudio.com/

Confirmed. Crappy controller support

It's a PlayStation ported to PC game. There is NO xbox360 version of this game.

Yup, the controls for the Xbox 360 controller suck. I would avoid if you plan to play this with an Xbox controller.

It's true the xbox controller "support" is truely horrid.
It only seems to allow you to reverse... =/

But the game itself I've found to be really quite good (I only played about 20 minutes).
Nice variety of car types, chassis, custom paint colours and decals.
Running into people's feet and having them pick up your RC car and throw it, genius!

My main issue is the AI is utterly brutal. Words just can't say how hard they are.

Anyway, just wanted to throw another opinion out there if Xbox controller support isn't the only thing you want to know about =).

The Xbox controller support may be missing, but I'm glad I bought it, as there isn't that many games like this on the PC and so far I think it's a very good game and very addictive and the AI is spot on and really challenging to race against. The time trial mode is also good, as you have pull off stunts perfectly to get extra speed boost, which allows you to reach the finish line on time.

For anyone complaining about lack of controller support, simply buy Pinnacle Game Profiler for $24.99 USD. Problem solved, or use the joytokey utility.

Excellent game for £6.99

I'm glad I read the forum on this game.

I will not be buying this game at any price, because of the poor controller support. Having good controller support for the PC games is not rocket science is a choice. Those pub/devs who chose to release games for the PC today with crappy controller support, which includes not being able to remap the controls will not my support.

Why should us, PC gamers have to use an external program to get controller/propper controller support on modernday released games? If devs cant/wont get something as common and old as controller support right, then why bother with their games period?
The more programs running while playing a game means the more likely a problem will accur, which means more problematic trouble shooting, wouldn't you agree?
